Southern Right is a small production Sauvignon Blanc and Pinotage specialist located in the cool, maritime, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation of South Africa. Founded by Anthony Hamilton Russell in 1994, Southern Right's Sauvignon Blanc remains a local and international best seller with its classic, tight minerality complementing the prominent varietal fruit. It has been rated the best South African Sauvignon Blanc in the Wall Street Journal and has won numerous Gold and Silver Medals. The wines are named after the rare Southern Right whales, which frequent the cool South Atlantic Walker Bay, 3 kilometres from the vineyards. With each bottle sold, Southern Right makes a contribution to Southern Right whale conservation.

We tasted and loved this Sauvignon
B which is bright, juicy, and delicious with loads of aromatics and a long, clean, dry finish. It is super complex in the pricepoint for Sauvignon Blanc from anywhere in the world, and it truly gives the New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs at $15-20 a run for their money.
